Hostelco, the International Exhibition of Equipment, Machinery and Services for Catering, Hospitality and Collectivities, will expand its offering and create new areas with a new conceptualisation of the exhibition space. It will also integrate new activities dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge, with a focus on hospitality business, interior design and generation of experiences. The fact that it takes place next to the Alimentaria trade show, will turn it into one of the largest trade show platforms in the world of hospitality and food.
Thus, the fair will create 6 new areas with their own identity: Fully Equipped (equipment, machinery, accessories); Setting (household, table service); Everywhere (transport, delivery, vending); Moments (equipment and accessories for coffee, bar, bakery, pizza and pastry); Tech (technology and entertainment); Atmosphere (interior design, decoration, textiles, furniture, wellness).
Interior design to create experiences
The relationship between quality, environment and price is the new factor that increasingly influences decision-making when choosing an establishment dedicated to hospitality. Because of this, Hostelco will open Atmosphere, a new exhibition area with its own personality, dedicated exclusively to the creation of environments and the interior design of hotel establishments, restaurants, cafeterias and other areas of the Horeca industry. Atmosphere will also host new experimental areas: Hostelco Live Hotel and Hostelco Live Restaurant, which will recreate the main rooms of a hotel and a restaurant, and Hostelco Live Arena, an area dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge and trends, with workshops, demonstrations and conferences led by experts in digitalisation of processes and state-of-the-art equipment to discuss how to optimise resources and improve customer experience.
Hostelco, organized by Fira de Barcelona and the FELAC (The Spanish Federation of Associations of Equipment Manufacturers for the Hospitality and Related Industries), will be held with Alimentaria from 20th to 23rd April 2020. The two fairs will occupy practically all Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via venue, in other words, a net surface area totalling around 110,000 m2. The joint holding of Hostelco and Alimentaria will once again constitute one of the largest international platforms for the food industry, gastronomy and catering equipment, as it will display the most comprehensive and cross-cutting range of products in the domestic and international markets to both the distribution chain and the horeca channel. By 2020, the supply of exclusive equipment and food for the Horeca industry is expected to exceed the 30,500 m2 it occupied in 2018, 63% with the catering equipment presented by Hostelco and 37% with food products for Restaurama’s Horeca industry.
Un nuovo brand che unisce le anime della manifestazione
e un nuovo payoff
per l’appuntamento professionale di riferimento in Italia. Confermata la contemporaneità con BB Tech Expo e
l’International Horeca Meeting di Italgrob
Beer Attraction diventa Beer&Food Attraction.
Un cambiamento decisivo, sottolineato dal nuovo payoff, “the eating out experience show”, che rimarca l’unicità di un evento capace di unire l’intera filiera delle esperienze del mangiare ‘fuoricasa’ e di attirare sempre di più gli operatori di tutto il food service.
L’appuntamento con la 6° edizione della manifestazione di Italian Exhibition Group è alla Fiera di Rimini dal 15 al 18 febbraio 2020.
I preparativi sono già fervidi, come le conferme delle aziende leader.
Si allarga il core business, che mantiene al centro l’universo della birra di qualità, dalle artigianali – confermata la pluriennale e proficua collaborazione con Unionbirrai – alle specialità birrarie, ma che si estende con decisione anche ai soft drinks e agli spirits.
Gli operatori professionali avranno così un panorama completo e unico del settore, spaziando dalla più completa offerta nazionale e internazionale di birre e beverage, all’universo Food per l’Horeca: dalle specialità regionali al mondo dei surgelati, dalle ultime tecnologie del food delivery agli arredamenti dei locali più cool. In questo contesto anche la ormai consolidata e spettacolare presenza della Federazione Italiana Cuochi, con una novità importante in via di definizione: un grande evento dedicato allo street food, che metterà alla prova i grandi cuochi provenienti da tutta Italia sul cibo di strada, sempre più un must per l’universo del ‘fuori casa’.
A Beer&Food Attraction sarà rappresentata l’intera filiera, grazie anche alla contemporaneità con BB TECH Expo, la fiera professionale delle tecnologie per birre e bevande, che ripropone la formula vincente di “fiera nella fiera” capace di mettere in relazione tutti i produttori di bevande con le aziende di materie prime, tecnologie processing e packaging.
Confermatissima, dopo il grande risultato della ‘prima’ riminese dell’anno scorso, anche la contemporaneità con l’International Horeca Meeting di Italgrob, dedicato al ‘fuoricasa’ italiano.
Ancora una volta tutti gli attori della filiera avranno l’occasione di ampliare il loro business, aggiornarsi e fare il punto della situazione su un settore dove il Made in Italy svolge un ruolo da leader.
Anche l’edizione 2020 si rivolge esclusivamente agli operatori professionali della filiera, la sola giornata di sabato 15 febbraio sarà aperta al mondo dei foodies e beer lovers.
Dialogo diretto con i massimi esperti internazionali di birra artigianale
Degustazioni guidate, neuromarketing, Best Craft Beer Label, Campionato italiano dei beer sommelier Doemens, pub crawl
Homebrewing Forum by MoBI (Movimento Birrario Italiano)
Mancano pochi giorni alla seconda edizione di CRAFT BEER ITALY, in scena al MiCo Lab Milano Congressi il 27 e 28 marzo 2019, e tutto è pronto per offrire ai visitatori un’esperienza unica. Punto di forza di questa edizione è l’internazionalità, l’area espositiva che cresce in termini di qualità e di metri quadrati, il livello tecnico delle conferenze e il ricco programma collaterale, ideato per valorizzare il comparto della birra artigianale e coinvolgere ancora di più il visitatore.
Il catalogo espositori, che vede la presenza di aziende leader per materie prime, tecnologie, packaging e marketing, è disponibile online, insieme al programma conferenze definitivo, arricchito da alcuni interventi pensati appositamente per aiutare i mastri birrai ad affrontare efficacemente le sfide quotidiane.
I professionisti di Doemens e VLB Berlino, partner di CRAFT BEER ITALY, saranno infatti a disposizione dei visitatori per una sessione di domande e risposte (in lingua italiana), occasione imperdibile per risolvere qualsiasi dubbio legato alla produzione brassicola. Anche l’associazione tedesca Private Brauereien, che da anni organizza il prestigioso concorso European Beer Star, ha scelto CRAFT BEER ITALY per dialogare con i birrai italiani e svelare loro tutti i segreti per accrescere il proprio successo grazie alla visibilità del concorso.
La parola passerà poi alle aziende fornitrici del settore, che ogni giorno affiancano i birrifici nella ricerca di soluzioni ad hoc per la loro attività: la conferenza CRAFT BEER ITALY ospiterà quindi tra gli altri gli interventi di Lallemand Brewing sugli enzimi nella birrificazione e di Fermentis sull’uso di lieviti secchi per i birrifici artigianali. Interverrà poi Hach Lange, che parlerà di monitoraggio dell’ossigeno e Arconvert Spa, che spiegherà come l’etichetta possa essere un efficace strumento di neuromarketing. Pentair invece presenterà soluzioni per la filtrazione a membrana adatte per la produzione di birra artigianale.
La conferenza non sarebbe stata completa senza il supporto di Unionbirrai: dal palco di CRAFT BEER ITALY l’associazione di categoria presenterà in via ufficiale il Report 2018 sul comparto birrario artigianale italiano e lancerà OBiArt, Osservatorio Birre Artigianali, nato in collaborazione con l’Università di Firenze.
Con Unionbirrai si parlerà anche di controllo qualità nel microbirrificio, di etichettatura e trasparenza e della coltivazione di luppolo in Italia.
Tra una conferenza e un incontro con i propri fornitori, i birrifici avranno la possibilità di farsi guidare dai sapienti Beer Sommeliers Doemens e Unionbirrai Beer Taster alla scoperta di birre italiane e internazionali a uno dei quattro corner degustazione dedicati. CRAFT BEER ITALY è orgogliosa di sostenere l’impegno delle donne nel settore brassicolo, per questo una delle aree degustazione sarà a cura dell’associazione Le Donne della Birra in collaborazione con Doemens.
E per tutti i visitatori c’è una piccola sorpresa “interattiva”: potranno vivere l’esperienza di neuromarketing allo stand di VDGlass e Cias Innovation, dove, grazie alla tecnologia EEG, sarà possibile scoprire in prima persona come reagisce il sistema cerebrale ai diversi tipi di bicchieri per degustare birra.
CRAFT BEER ITALY 2019 ha in serbo un’altra grande novità: in collaborazione con MoBi – Movimento Birrario Italiano, NürnbergMesse Italia offrirà dei seminari gratuiti per la formazione degli homebrewer direttamente all’interno del padiglione nel Homebrewing Forum. Perché CRAFT BEER ITALY è la casa dei birrai di oggi ma anche di quelli futuri.
Lo stesso forum ospiterà poi la fase finale del Campionato italiano dei beer sommelier Doemens, occasione unica per assistere alla sfida tra sommelier, che consentirà l’accesso al prestigioso World Championship of Beer Sommeliers. Sempre al forum andrà in scena la premiazione del concorso Best Craft Beer Label – quando l’etichetta fa la differenza. Tutti i partecipanti al concorso potranno godere non solo dell’occasione unica di visibilità a CRAFT BEER ITALY e a BrauBeviale 2019, ma potranno anche beneficiare di sconti sulla stampa delle loro etichette grazie alla collaborazione con TIC TAC Stampa, azienda che crede fortemente nelle potenzialità di quelle piccole grandi realtà che sono i birrifici artigianali, tanto da aver adottato anche dei materiali dedicati alle loro etichette.
Dopo un’intensa e proficua giornata a CRAFT BEER ITALY i visitatori potranno approfittare di una serie di eventi OFF sparsi per la città, come il pub crawl in diversi locali iconici di Milano e party esclusivi. Per saperne di più, visitate il sito www.craft-beer-italy.it
A questo punto non rimane altro che registrarsi online sul sito di CRAFT BEER ITALY per ottenere il proprio biglietto e raggiungere Milano sfruttando le tariffe scontate per i viaggi in pullman offerte da SoBus.

Cibus, the international exhibition of Made in Italy food, has turned into a yearly event: already at its second edition, Cibus Connect 2019 has doubled the dedicated pavilions, almost reaching the number of Cibus’ exhibitors. About 6 months before the opening of Cibus Connect 2019 (at Fiere di Parma from 10 to 11April), Italian food companies are confirming their attendance, showing their appreciation for the exhibition’s smart format: two days only, turnkey booths, lots of space for the cooking show station with tastings dedicated to professional visitors and a large Buyers’ lounge for international operators to hold business meetings. Hundreds of new food products will be introduced at Cibus Connect, thanks to the ever-growing attention Italian company are paying to innovation.
Cibus Connect 2019 (held on odd years and organized by Fiere di Parma in collaboration with Fed eralimentare) is strategically scheduled at the same time as Vinitaly; this spectacular week dedicated to Italian food and wine has created a buzz among international buyers. Thanks also to ICE’s (the Italian Trade and Investment Agency) engagement, thousands of foreign buyers are confirming their attendance to Cibus Connect 2019 in combination with a special tour of Vinitaly and of the most important agri industrial districts in Northern and Southern Italy.
The presence of the entire supply chain during the two days of Cibus Connect will also offer the opportunity to further discuss at conferences the most pressing matters of the Italian agri-food business. Most important among those are the results and perspectives of the bilateral trade agreements between Italy, Europe and other countries, which are modifying the growth of exports, thanks to the active contribution of our own entrepreneurs and the supply chain agreements that, due to new enabling digital technologies, are transforming the role and the awareness of all the players involved, from field to fork. Experts, researchers, and representatives at all level of the institutions will take on these two deeply intertwined topics, and endeavor to bring perspective and shared the vision to the sector.
Another subject of discussion during Cibus Connect will be the promotion of Italian Central Southern regions as a development platform in terms of quality and quantity for the Italian food&beverage sector: there will be comparisons on performances and key success factors obtained in this area that, in recent times, has been able to combine extraordinary growth with volumes and values.
As it’s usually the case at Cibus, operators will find at the exhibition, besides thousands of Italian food companies, hundreds of small or semi-industrial food producers in attendance at the Slow Food exhibition area, provided with its own Talk & Show Cooking space.
The Cibus 2019 – 2020 programme will be introduced to buyers and the international press, together with the exhibitors of the various regions, on the occasion of the most important international shows. After New York’s Fancy Food in July and Paris’ Gourmet Selection in September, Cibus’ missions shall be present at: SIAL International Food Exhibition in Paris from October 21 to 25; Food Hotel China in Shanghai from November 13 to 15; in London on November 19 on the occasion of the Week of Italian Cuisine; at the Sirha event in Lyon, Internorga in Hamburg and BioFach in Nuremberg between January and February 2019; Gulfood in Dubai, Fancy Food in San Francisco and Foodex in Tokyo between February and March 2019.
“The people of the night have weird jobs…” said a famous Italian song from the ‘90s, depicting the peculiar nightlife in Milan at that time. In this context, Carlo Morandi, barman of the Milanese scene, takes his first steps behind the counters of the most important clubs in Milan, such as Hollywood, Blues House, Propaganda, Heaven and Sunset Garden. He began doing this job in the late ‘80s and never stopped.
“HORECA INTERNATIONAL” couldn’t find a better interlocutor to discuss about what is the best formula to make and serve a good cocktail to a sophisticated clientele who is used to hanging out in famous and exclusive nightclubs, in a city where the competition and the offer in terms of nightlife is extremely fierce.
“Choosing the best ingredients is essential says Carlo for instance, if you mix a good gin or a good vodka together with a good tonic water, and you get the doses right and the alchemy right, be sure that the 90% of your drinks will be excellent. However, cocktail presentation shouldn’t be overlooked quality is important here too therefore decorations and glasses are all elements that a good barman can’t ignore. For this reason, in the clubs where I have worked, whenever it was possible,
I have personally selected the suppliers of spirits and soft drinks, and the suppliers of primary ingredients, such as fresh fruit, for great nonalcoholic cocktails as well as the suppliers of everything might be needed behind a counter, from the glasses to kitchen tools, from the beers to coffee. You can’t just take on the role of barman, nor can you take on the role of nightclub manager. If you want to offer a high quality service you need to stay up to date, go to trade events and check out trade magazines, which are of great help for any professional in this field”.
Looking for wine education and professionalism? Ask the sommeliers of AIS Lombardy
More than 7000 members, a complete training offer with more than 4500 people wine lovers and trade professionals attending one of the 55 courses (level 1, 2 and 3) organized by one of the 11 provincial delegations only in 2018. And then a great number of events all the year round, including themed evenings with food and wine tastings, based in the dynamic and vital city of Milan, en riching a training offer that is rather unique in the Italian world of wine.
We are talking about the Italian Association of Sommeliers (AIS) of Lombardy, the biggest regional group among AIS. “These great numbers make us very much proud because they demonstrate the love this region has for wine and the good work we have been doing during these years”, explains Hosam Eldin Abou Eleyoun, the new president of AIS Lombardy since July 2018, with his twenty year career within AIS at the head of the largest Italian delegation, the Milanese delegation. “These are important numbers that encourage us to do better”. The desire to become a sommelier, the final stage after attending a three level course and taking the final exam both written and oral, including a wine tasting doesn’t seem to be in crisis, on the contrary, it appears to get more popular every year.
«Undoubtedly, there is a great interest in wine. Our achievements are not fortuitous; they are the result of many little pieces we have put together day after day. The Expo in Milan in 2015, for example, where the sommeliers from Lombardy were the protagonists in the Lombardy pavilion, certainly brought us prestige and visibility. We were well prepared for it and that success made us even more enthusiastic for the future”. Behind these results, there is a lot of work, which is appreciated by many professionals who approach AIS in order to train their staff in a professional and qualified way. “Many organizations contact us to train their sommeliers to work in wine shops, hotels or restaurants explains Hosam Eldin in those places where wine, spirits, beers, oil, blends and even cigars, require a fully trained staff”. Moreover, nowadays the AIS sommeliers can be found in supermarkets and in wineries as well. “Besides, who else would be able to welcome the wine tourists visiting our wineries better than one of our sommeliers?”.
AIS Lombardy publishes a biannual magazine that is sent to all members, and a guide, Viniplus di Lombardia, with a lot of contributions from a large group of tasters: it is available both online (www. viniplus.wine) and in the printed edition, and it is distributed to 800 restaurants throughout Lombardy: “We are very fond of our job; we put a lot of passion, research and expertise into it”, says Hosam Eldin. “The fact that many restaurants in Lombardy are now choosing to include our regional wines in their wine lists gives us a greater impulse to pursue our mission of spreading knowledge”.
